The almost four minute long video footage of the UFO is being taken seriously by UFOlogists.
Investigators were able to obtain detailed data and general information about the incident from a Freedom of Information Act Request (FOIA) to the U.S. Air Force. They were also able to obtain relevant information from the airport which confirmed that a FedEX flight was delayed due to the sighting.
The UFO incident allegedly began at about 9.20 pm on April 25 2013 at the Rafael Hernandez Airport in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. The UFO was being monitored by the crew of a DHC-8 Turboprop aircraft from US Customs and Border Protection part of DHS.
“The object was between three to five feet in length and its speed varied between approximately 40 mph to 120 mph. Its median speed was roughly 80 mph,” investigators said.
The UFO exhibited characteristics unlike any known aircraft or natural object. For instance, in the 4-minute video, the UFO appeared to fly through water for about half a mile before it emerged again without losing speed significantly.
“Its speed through the water reached a high of 95 mph and average 82.8 mph,” a source said.
The video also shows it flying at high speed over land before it plunges into the ocean. It appears to be morphing into different shapes as it flies.
Towards the end of the video, two objects appear, but it is uncertain whether the UFO broke into two or whether a second similar object joined it in flight.
Nick Pope, who formerly investigated UFO sightings for the Ministry of Defence, is intrigued by the footage.
“Assuming the video isn’t a clever hoax, which is always a possibility these days, it’s a fascinating piece of footage,” Pope said.
“About the only conventional explanation that might fit the bill is that this is some new drone, but the entry and exit from the sea and the apparent splitting in two of the object makes even this explanation seem unlikely.
This is exactly the sort of video that I and intelligence specialists at the MoD got most excited about, as the available data allows for a proper, scientific analysis.
I’ll be watching developments on this one with interest.”
The report concluded: “There is no explanation for an object capable of traveling under water at over 90 mph with minimal impact as it enters the water, through the air at 120 mph at low altitude through a residential area without navigational lights, and finally to be capable of splitting into two separate objects.
“No bird, no balloon, no aircraft, and no known drones have that capability.”
